The only thing that matters Frozen Perl 2009
The Only Thing That Matters.
Get Perl 6 out this year.
We've had Perl 6 for years.
Rakudo is the Parrot implementation.
It releases monthly with Parrot.
But it's not what people think of as being Perl 6.
Not yet, at least.
We are near the crest of the hill.
Parrot's March release will be Parrot 1.0.
Parrot releases every third Tuesday.
Parrot 1.0 = March 17
We still don't know what Rakudo will be.
What is in a standard Rakudo install?
What will we port from Perl 5 to Perl 6?
Who will create LWP, DBI, etc for Perl 6?
What will the toolchain be like?
What will CPAN be?
Will we even use CPAN?
Does an 11-year-old distribution model make sense today?
Will we pull from github directly?
What will be the same?
Now is the time to join in.
The point of the spear is widening.
Larry-level genius not necessary
Talk to this guy Patrick Michaud
Your opportunities to inﬂuence Perl 6 are endless.
Start building modules
Toolchain: module installers, etc
Any module you rely on in life.
Close bugs (Jim Keenan rocks at this)
Change our language.
Start talking about Rakudo, not Perl 6.
Start saying quot;Perl 5quot;. It reminds people there's another Perl.
Follow Rakudo at rakudo.org
Help build the new Rakudo.org
The other Only Thing That Matters
Perl 5 must continue to thrive and grow.
Perl 5 will not disappear when Rakudo rolls out.
Help teach that to the world.
Perl 5 is still a fantastic software platform.
Moose brings the joy of Perl 6 to you today.
Catalyst is becoming the framework of choice.
Don't want Perl 6? No problem!
Continue to create magic awesomeness with Perl 5.
Perl 5 will not steal from Perl 6.
Perl 5 will add to Perl 6.
Perl 6 has already added to Perl 5.
Help projects that will keep Perl 5 going.
Perl::Critic will be the basis for Perl6::Critic
Talk to these guys Elliot Shank, Chris Dolan
Oh, and one more thing...
The third Only Thing That Matters
Be excellent to each other.
Perl's crowning achievement = CPAN
CPAN = community.
Community = people.
So by the transitive property...
Perl's crowning achievement = people.
You have no community if people aren't excellent to each other.
Community is what makes Perl > perl.
We cannot fragment between Perl 5 and Perl 6.
We have a prime opportunity to bring new people into Perl 6.
The only things that matter. • Rakudo must come out in 2009. • Perl 5 must continue to thrive and grow. • Be excellent to each other.
Thank you. You rock.
